....SO? Is it? And is it worth it if so? Thank you for your time reading my question...
Short answer: no
It will die as it was born
It is not possible for the owner to add more RAM to their iPad after it's purchased.
Yes it is possible all you have to do is fold your arms and blink your eyes and it should work if not than no you can't add anymore RAM to any iPad.
That's what I figured... It just crashes more and more as I'm sure the reason is because the programs of today are more power and memory hungry then before.
Have you bothered to wipe it clean and restore all your apps & data completely? The iPad is a computer too...and after time, things just need to be cleaned up.
Really? I mean, I know it's no different then a computer but clearing it out completely and getting better results I did not know. Are the steps of doing that to long to list? I don't want to appear lazy, would a google search do just fine? Thank you so very much for your time and advice...
Hi Nathan, welcome to the forum. Basic maintenance of memory would be as follows......
Double press the round Home button to expose the task/history bar at the bottom. Tap and hold any icon until they all jiggle with a red minus sign in the top left corner. Tap all the minus signs one by one until all apps are closed. You are not deleting them, just forcing them closed. Now tap anywhere above this bar to return to the home screen.
Then...reset/reboot, hold the power/sleep button and the home button down at the same time and continue holding until the Apple logo appears. Let go and your iPad should restart although it may take longer than usual. Also..go into Safari Settings and delete history, data and cookies, plus remember to power your iPad off regularly. Hope this helps.
Thank you for that info. So what your explaining is to close all programs and restart ipad? I'm very familiar with that. I was thinking there were something I had to do in iTunes to completely reset the ipad. I've closed all programs before and restarted to no change. But I seriously appreciate everyone's responses here. Thank you all!!
I guess importantly what apps are you trying to run?
I used to have 'crash' problem but if I only use not too high requirement apps (generally I would stay apps only require iOS less than 5) I am good.
I have also install a memory software that free up some memory from time to time.
So far I am happy.
